Hop hop, said the rabbit

Pull, pull said the bear.

Straddle straddle shrieked the otter, 

crouch crouch said

the fish

doing splits in a 90 degree angles.

Angle as in perspective of 

your views

of windows of

boredom and

want –train of

thought train of 

pillows. Geo-

metric numbers and


ABC’s but in 

what tongue?

Angles  and Angels,

anguish and animals

how quiet it is

as the puppet said,

hoisted by yet another puppet

how exciting, cried

the second puppet

pulled by no one.
